Ahhh are you ready for more Bridgerton? I know I am!!
This time around, it’s all focused around Queen Charlotte in a prequel series.
Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story tells the story of the young monarch in the days before her excellent wigs and her quest to uncover the identity of Lady Whistledown. The series delves into Charlotte’s and King George III’s (Corey Mylchreest) great love story and how it sparked a societal shift, creating the world of the ton inherited by the characters in Bridgerton.
“Working with Corey has been phenomenal,” Amarteifio tells Tudum. “He is someone I can trust and go to for honest advice. He’s someone who really, really cares about the job, which comes across in every way in his acting and in our scenes together.” Mylchreest has similar feelings about his on-screen paramour: “Both of us [are] incredibly excited, privileged, honored and overwhelmed with the opportunity to portray these incredible people in this incredible story.”
In addition to the royal romance, the Bridgerton prequel will also feature a younger incarnation of Lady Danbury (played by Andoh on Bridgerton and now played by Arsema Thomas) and also stars Ruth Gemmell as Lady Violet Bridgerton, Michelle Fairley as Princess Augusta, Sam Clemmett as Young Brimsley, Richard Cunningham as Lord Bute, Tunji Kasim as Adolphus, Rob Maloney as the Royal Doctor, Cyril Nri as Lord Danbury, Freddie Dennis as Reynolds and Hugh Sachs as older Brimsley.
Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story premieres on Netflix on May 4, 2023. Check out the trailer below.
